Krokmitën is an experimental Death Metal band from Montréal.

Krokmitën 2015 Line-up:

Simlev (Guitar + Vocals)
Guyot (Drums)

[pronounced croc-me-ten] Definition: Cajun phonetic spelling of the french word "croque-mitaine". A shapeless imaginary being used by adults to frighten children into behaving. Syn; Boogeyman, Bonhomme sept-heures, El coco, El ogro, Böögg, Monstret under sängen, Der schwarze Mann, Bicho Papão, Mörkö, Alploochra, Antchoutka, Bouloulou, Namahage...

In the early 90's, inspired by the peak of Thrash Metal and the early Death Metal scene, mainman Simlev and a couple of friends formed Krokmitën. They recorded two demos and played gigs in and around the Montreal area. Subsequently, each band member had to deal with their respective life obligations; a lenghty hiatus ensued.

With a fresh start in mind, Simlev rebuilt Krokmitën from the ground up, wrote and recorded 'Alpha-Beta' starting in 2005. The 46-minute track with animation synched to the music was then released in August 2011 with help from original drummer Mathz and newcomer guitarist Dubg. 'Alpha-Beta' created fans worldwide and was very well received by critics of the metal scene. Mathz parted ways with Krokmitën in late 2012 to pursue other projects, and Lupiaan, a long-time friend of the band, quickly became official drummer. While collaboration with Dubg came to an end, Simlev and Lupiaan slaved over production of the second official album that took over 20 months to create. A 50-minute non-stop piece called 'Omicron-Omega', saw the light of day in July 2014.

Krokmitën is now working on their third full lenght album titled 'HETA'. The album should be released before the end of the year 2015.
Stay tuned as things progress.

Awesome tracks! Very refreshing approach on the Death Metal genre. Keep up the good work!

Arturo AT (Mexico) 2012/10/31
At fist, i was a little afraid of your proyect, didn´t hear anything from you in the past, actually I knew your work from Twitter. I most say, that your vision on DEATH METAL is UNIQUE as fucking hell! I´m not talking about just the music, but the lyric concept, wich I consider quite intelligent and propositive. The fact that you share so freely your music with the fans, it´s somenthing that shall be followed by a lot of new and, why not, old bands. The world has changed a lot in the last years, and the way you spread your work it fits perfectly to the needs of a new generation of MetalHeads and establishes a real-time relacionship with the fans all over the world. Thank you so much for this!

Krokmiten frontman Simlev 2015

August 11th 2015

Montréal-based Death Metal band KROKMITËN are now entering into production for their third full-length album HETA! (Previously announced title DOMINION). The band’s Frontman Simlev released this update about their upcoming offering;

"Hey Metalheads! A lot has happened since January. We worked super hard on this album’s songwriting, arrangements and on pushing Dominion's concept even further. Sadly, and with only a few minutes left to be written on the album, drummer Lupiaan made the decision to leave Krokmitën. Lupiaan contributed so much to Dominion that I didn't feel comfortable releasing this concept without him so I shelved it. That's how and why HETA came to life.

It's important to understand that when working on studio projects as challenging as a Krokmitën album, there’s a lot of roadblocks, mainly being time, energy and of course money. As independent artists, we make music for ourselves first. Since we insist on offering the albums for free, we need day jobs to support this passion! By working regular jobs during the day we have financial stability in our personal lives and further we’re completely independent from the music industry's negative influences. It's however an enormous challenge, juggling with those roadblocks. Fortunately I became fairly efficient at it by trying to stay as disciplined and organized as possible and where it counts. Over a longer period of time it can be hard on one' system and motivation can be difficult to maintain. I'm an artist with a vision that pushes the boundaries until the full potential has been reached, it's a make-it-or-break-it mentality. It’s a difficult commitment to make for the people involved in my project. It’s mainly for these reasons the band’s lineup has turned-over on every release. Despite all of this, I believe my vision and ideas keep getting stronger and I will continue surrounding myself with great musicians to create great music.

That being said, now with the good news! I’m happy to announce that the third album writing is completed and production is well underway. Guyot Begin-Benoit will be taking over drums duty on HETA. He's an incredible talent; fast, precise and creative. Some of you know him from Beyond Creation's first album, The Aura. He's entering my studio to record his drums next week and I'm super psyched to be working with him. I hope to begin mixing in September. J-F Dagenais of Kataklysm will be mastering the album once he's back from touring. I think it’s safe to say that HETA should see the light of day in a couple of months from now. I'll keep you posted on its progresses!"

KROKMITËN: Lupiaan to replace original drummer Mathz
November 26th 2012

Simlev, KROKMITËN'S frontman issued the following statement: "We are pleased to welcome Lupiaan in the band. He's is a very talented drummer, his technical skills, passion and commitment to the band, as well as a high human affinity with us immediately gave him a place in the band. Lupiaan has already started working with us on our next album "Omicron-Omega" for over a month now. We are ready to continue creating music with a new enthusiasm and a newfound energy. We have no doubt, he's the best man to fill the space left by such an important member. We've known Lupiaan for over 20 years now. Since the 90's, he supported us at gigs, helped us carry our gear, with promotions and whatnot. Overall, he always had Krokmitën's blood pumping through his veins."
